    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pen Argyl

    Pen Argyl, PA, is a small borough with only about 3500 residents. Seniors that enjoy the quiet and charm of small-town life will feel right at home in Pen Argyl. The borough also has plenty of historical sites, including the Weona Park carousel built in the late 1800s. In Pennsylvania, assisted living facilities are called Personal Care Homes. They are licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. There are only two personal care homes within Pen Argyl with several more in nearby Wind Gap, Stroudsburg and Kunkletown.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pen Argyl

    • Pen Argyl has a cost of living slightly lower than the national average. The lowest cost is housing, which is good for seniors since Personal Care Homes can keep fees lower. The highest cost in the borough is health. This can be bad for seniors for medical issues and those without insurance.

    • Crime is very low in the Pen Argyl borough. On a scale from 1 for low crime and 100 for high crime, the town has a violent crime average of 12 and a property crime average of 27. Seniors can feel safe on the streets of Pen Argyl.

    • Pen Argyl is found in eastern Pennsylvania. Because of its northeastern location in the United States, it does see all four seasons with extreme temperatures changes. Summer highs reach an average of 83 degrees Fahrenheit while winter lows reach an average of 19 degrees Fahrenheit. The borough does see lots of rain at 50 inches a year and snow at 32 inches a year. Bad weather and extreme temperatures can affect senior health.

    • The National Air Toxics Assesment gives Pen Argyl an air quality rating of 54 out of 100. The assessment determines cancer and respiratory illness risks. Since 100 is the best on the scale, that means Pen Argyl sits almost exactly in the middle. This makes it difficult to determine just how good or bad the air is for seniors.

    • The Pen Argyl area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness. The nearest major hospitals are St. Luke’s Monroe Campus 11 miles away in Stroudsburg or Easton Hospital 15 miles away in Easton.

    • Pennsylvania does not tax social security income. Seniors can keep the entire check to help with expenses.
